How to Overcome Jealousy

How to Overcome Jealousy

Have you ever felt jealousy that you just couldn’t explain? It wasn’t anything that your partner was doing necessarily. You knew you were wrong in feeling jealous. While feeling insecure in your relationship means that you likely feel insecure in other parts of your life.

The way to address this is by building up your confidence. Do things outside of your relationship that makes you feel good and improve your self-esteem. This, in turn, will help you feel better with your partner.

Some things you can do is focus on the exterior – hit the gym and workout, get a new hairstyle or makeover, or go to the mall to update your look if you haven’t done so in a while. The next step is to look at areas in your life where you can expand. You may consider learning another language, sport, or taking a class. All of these things will help you to expand and feel better about yourself. The final area that you need to focus on is self-love.

I know this sounds kind of corny, but hear me out. We all have those negative voices in the back of our heads that put us down. You need to tell them to shut up and replace the negativity with positive affirmations. Reprogram your brain. Thoughts lead to words, words lead to actions. Positive affirmations are a way to retrain your mind to change your thoughts.



Make Them Want You: Self-Expansion

Have you ever broke up with someone and then down the road, you see them doing something new and different that they had never done before when you were together?

Or have you ever had an ex resurface when they see you moving on with your life and doing some new things such as travel, or have new hobbies and interests?

When you do something new and different for yourself, it’s called self-expansion. Self-expansion is found to increase sexual attraction when a person sees someone in a new light. In other words, the more someone self-expands by doing new things (like doing a new hobby or learning a new skill such as dancing or learning to ride a motorcycle), the more your ex or current partner will find you attractive and feel excited or aroused by you.

So expanding your skills will not only make you well-rounded and increase your confidence, it will make you more attractive. Sounds like you can’t go wrong there!

What have you done to self-expand? Let us know in the comments below!

April's Take On Facebook's New Dating Feature

Facebook Looking to Launch New Dating Feature in the US

LUMA CEO April Davis interviewed on KARE11 News to voice her thoughts on the new Facebook Dating Feature. It may launch by end of year here in the US and has already launched in Columbia, Canada, Thailand, and Mexico. Although there can be safety issues with online dating, the new feature could be a hit.

Online Dating Safety Tips

  • You have to use common sense and be careful with anything when meeting people you don't know

  • People aren't who they appear to be online. Sometimes, you meet in person and go ‘the image doesn’t match. Be aware of this!

  • Pro tip: only add people you’ve met or have mutual friends with.

Spring Clean Your Love Life

Spring Clean Your Love Life

Spring is the season for fresh starts, especially when it comes to love. There’s truth to the saying “Spring Flings turn to Summer Romances”. April is a common time for breakups, and many singles are ready to start looking for a fresh beginning with someone new.

Here’s how you can get yourself on your “A” Game for Spring Dating this year:

1. Dust off your confidence

Get out of hibernation mode and show the world that you’ve done so! Buy some nice new outfits, exercise more frequently, and/or get a haircut. Then, update your social media profile pictures sporting your fresh new look.

2. Delete the duds

Now is a good time to break free from the ones you don’t see a future relationship with. Delete contacts that are “old flames” that shouldn’t be rekindled.

3. Refresh your routine.

Get out there! Doing more activities you already love or have an interest in can help you meet other singles with the same interests as you. Are you into fitness and want a fit partner? Start up a gym membership and initiate a conversation with the cutie working out next to you. Love dogs? Take your pup to the dog park and start up a conversation with other dog owners. The opportunities here are limitless!
